by WTNLVR » Jul 7, 2008 I think the state sponsored charity plates are a great idea. I''m in Mass and we have them here. I''d get one but I have one of the really old green plates (27 years old, first and only plate I''ve ever had) can''t give that baby up-LOL. We have a site that you can plug in what you want and see if it''s taken already. I''m also really frugal and even though it''s for a good cause, I don''t want to renew every year vs. every 2 as I do now.
